To my dear brothers and sisters: Happy Holidays and 2007.
May the Force be with you and yours in your expended awareness and bless you with lots of joy, health, love and prosperity.
This little message has nothing to do with religion, rituals, and time/space.
It has to do with you, me, and this momentous time in our enfolding as humanity, and addresses the deeper meaning of the warmth we all seek during this phase of life, first from out dear family members and friends, and truly from the Source within.
Many experience feelings of solitude, some depression; a longing for something they know exists but cannot be formulated. In extreme cases, individuals have done the unthinkable and cut the chord of life in order to go back to a place of peace or negation of suffering of their soul, a place which they sense and know exists.
Why would this magnificent period of surrendering to reconnection with one’s beloved ones often bring about these deep rooted feelings of existential sadness?
Let me suggest an explanation.
After the Fall of our Being, when our inner and outer nature has shown that it is refolding for a while, disconnecting from the warm rays of the Sun, and cannot spring new life in its unconditional desire to do so, we enter a harsher phase. Many almost hibernate within. They go about life, like robots, almost lifeless. All is focused on immediate physical survival and physical well-being. As we visit these long dark nights and hope that our inner reserves will carry us to the next spring of pure Consciousness, we take pause, reflect inward, and often feel that we have lost track of our most important source. White is blending all colors back into its grip. We need the warmth of the remaining family and friends. Old connections are cherished and we gift them our thanks for they have brought us to who we have become until now. New ones will arise soon, but for now we take a moment to diagnose where we are in the great adventure of life.
It is during these moments that the fear of having lost our loving connections sometimes grips us, and our soul who longs forever for a reconnection to Source often weeps at our advanced state of amnesia after watching us having experienced the “fall.” It longs for “home.”
I wish you to marry Christ-mas within you and awaken into a glorious New 2007 and world, where the heavens you carry within will marry the Earth you experience as your Reality without and you will know who you really were, are, and will always be: The One Dear child of the One G. that you carry within you as your own Divine child-Self. This is the Holy marriage we should all strive for.
This Merry-Age is the real New Age many speak of and spoke about. We need to make serious vows towards it for it to become our experience lasting to Eternity. We need to be strong in our desire of keeping it alive trough the dark deep cold winter. This is our challenge. This is what this period symbolizes in so many connected stories ranging from the Pagan rites on the Winter Solstice around the Evergreen tree covered with white, to the Birth within of the Divine child self, and to the miracle of the Holy little lamp of Chanukah that carries us through the dark period and illuminates within our inner temple, when all is done for us to forget our connection to Unity. This Eternal flame still shines deep within, minute after minute of life. Keeping our main focus upon it, leads to pleasures and rewards far greater than the sweetest of wine, and the best of material and sensory delights.
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Solstice-Sun’s rebirth, Happy 2007.
Happy Holy Days, my dear friends. May this tiny Flame of the One and Only, hidden in the recesses of your being, be anointed with Divine Oil. Please do not allow it to be extinguished, as so many have because of their deep forgetfulness about who they really are, for we are all now visiting the abodes of the Tree of Death and believe in its untruthful stories. May this little lamp burn long enough to rekindle the big fire of the real Tree of Life, Eternally lit in a celebration of Life and joy, in the Holy of Holies that you all, without exemption, carry hidden within your Hearts.
I would like to quote from an article I posted on our website on April 08, 2005
What is the Christ? (Christ is the English form of the Greek word (Christós), which means “The Anointed One.” The word was originally used to translate the Hebrew word Mashiach (Mašía), meaning Messiah, which if read in reverse means Chai Shem. Shem (The Creator) shall live as the Shemen – Oil in Hebrew – and the real Spiritual Semen harboring and spreading life)
The Christ is a place in consciousness where you become aware of who and what you are. When you become aware of the One Presence within, you awaken from a deep sleep. You become aware of the beauty around you. Things that once seemed a burden are no longer a burden. You become aware that nothing is yours and yours alone. You are aware that all things and all people belong to God. You know you are his child and you see that if you are a child of God, all others are children of God.
You know in your heart that even your children are not yours. If you are a child of God so are the ones you have called yours. Then you begin to release your hold on them and give them back to God. You trust God to take care of them, whereas in the past you have tried to mold them to your way, or tried to take over their responsibilities. You realize that instead of helping them you have retarded them. You also realize that they too must see their mistakes. Instead of taking over, you speak to the Christ within them and you pour out impersonal love; this is true Christ love. You become aware of why your love must become impersonal. You realize that it is not possible to love all people in a personal way; you love all because all are One.
You begin to speak to God as you would to your dearest friend. You speak to him knowing He is within and not in a far off place You feel warmth from within that you have not felt before. You tell Him you have given up the struggle. You feel your troubles take wings and fly away. At last you are free. You have come to that place in consciousness where the Christ dwells, that Heavenly place that belongs to all, and you know that at long last you have come home. You stand serene and look back over the far country that you have roamed and struggled and wonder why it took you so long to come home. Then you will know the meaning of the words: “You cannot enter into the Kingdom of Heaven except through the Christ (The Anointing).”
To that part within I bow in deep gratitude for Its infinite patience in awaiting our awakening back home. To you all I wish that the upcoming winter finds you surrounded with the Loving warmth of your beloved ones and the Beloved you all carry within: The One. May we spring forth in joy and dance soon as we rekindle our loves for ourselves as One.
In Love of Oneness
